Just when I thought I couldn't read anything more unbelievable than the things I've already read on the Internet, I come across this bit. According to, Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, of Canton, Michigan is seeking $60 million from Zondervan Publishers and another $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing in lawsuits flied in U.S. District Court of the Easton District of Michigan, reports the Grand Rapids Press. Fowler states that he's suing the two major Christian publishers for violating his constitutional rights and causing emotional pain, because the Bible versions they publish refer to homosexuality as a sin. Fowler alleges the companies' bibles’ references to homosexuality as a sin has made him an outcast from his family and contributed to physical discomfort and periods of “demoralization, chaos and bewilderment.” He filed suit against Tennessee publisher Thomas Nelson in June. Meanwhile, Zondervan said that even if Fowler’s claim is credible, he is suing the wrong party. A company spokesman told WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids that Zondervan doesn’t translate the Bible or own the copyright for any of the translations.

Fowler alleges both Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, with its King James Bibles, manipulated scripture without informing the public by using the term “homosexuals” in a New Testament passage, 1 Corinthians 6:9. He told WOOD-TV he wants to be compensated for the past 20 years of emotional duress and mental instability.

The report also states that U.S. District Judge Julian Abele Cook Jr. refused Monday to appoint an attorney to represent Fowler in the Thomas Nelson case, saying the court “has some very genuine concerns about the nature and efficacy of these claims.” So Fowler has been representing himself in both lawsuits.

How are you going to sue the essence of biblical truth as the old but true statement 'its tight but it's right' he's a idoit and all his efforts will be in vain. Homosexuality is against the order of God.
